as he tribesmen another see the u.s., for instance you would see them as an al qaeda member. the u.s. thinks it's killing an al qaeda member and maybe it is. but he's been a killed on the ground and yemenis seen being killed is in fact the tribesman. this is a challenge that the u.s. obama administration not released all and i would argue that the drones in the airstrikes have not actually solve the problem and they've actually exacerbated the problem the great deal. so not to go on too long, but just let me close with this last scenario. after the christmas day attack 2009, president obama asked his staff to imagine what would happen if al qaeda had been successful and i think that's a very good exercise. and if today al qaeda were able to carry out an attack, even a fairly small one not on the scale of september 11th, but on the scale of christmas day 2009, with the u.s. respond? many people, put myself into a large-scale renovation of yemen would be mistaken that the u.s. has been bombing them and for the past three years and it really doesn't seem to have had the impact of the u.

a little bit and to talk just for a moment about the u.s. competitiveness and the u.s. economy in a global context. and their actually was an oecd report that came out this morning that does that admirably. this report predicts that within four years, by 2016, the chinese economy will be bigger than the economy. and what the oecd report sort of further says, it's a great report. if you're interested, take a look online. today the u.s. economy accounts for 23% of the world's economy and india is 7. in 2030, according to the oecd predictions, china will be 29% of the world economy, the u.s. will be 18 and india will be 11. and those are, i think, really worthwhile numbers to keep in our mind as we talk about u.s. competitiveness in the world economy, because we're entering this entirely new era where the u.s. is going to be a big player in the world economy but no longer the preeminent, the very largest one, and i think that brings real challenges and requires a whole new way of thinking. so my opening remarks, steve was introduced, i think quite rightly, as a guy who i hope is getting cases

elections. as well as a growing pressure from congress as will some u.s. allies in the region against diplomacy. focus shifted to sanctions and tehran responded by further expanding its nuclear program leaving both sides worse off today than they were a few years ago. in the meantime, sanctions have held iranian middle class for the impoverished population while the regime's repression and human rights abuses have continued to intensify and its nuclear program has continued to expand. but a new window for opportunity for diplomacy has opened through obama's convincing real election, and in the next few months, up until the iranian new year, both sides enjoy maximum political space and maneuverability to negotiate effectively. the logic of diplomacy is obvious. it's the only option that can truly resolve the issue. sanctions can cripple iran's economy at the expense of destiny that pro-democracy movement there, but sanctions alone cannot resolve this issue. the military option can set back the program for a year or two but only at the expense of ensuring that eventually iran eventually

u.s. ambassador to pakistan the ambassador to the united states and former adviser to hillary clinton. hosted by the world affairs council of america, this is 45 minutes. [applause] >> is a great pleasure to be here with such a great panel, three ambassadors and one globally renowned journalist and scholars. so i've been told there have been a lot of questions about pakistan and afghanistan so far and i think we have a first-rate panel to start dealing with them. what i'm going to do in terms of focusing the discussion is i'm going to key off with questions to each of our panelists, one each and allow for a little bit of follow up and then i will open the floor to use and you will have more time to engage with them. let me begin with ambassador munter. you already got his bio, but i think in some ways he is almost uniquely positioned to provide us a very recent perspective on what pakistan looks like in the united states to official american advisers and diplomats and also the u.s. pakistan relationship during what was an exceedingly difficult and trying time which is no refle
behind closed doors friday on the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. and his testimony for the house and senate intelligence committees bizarre revelations about the four-star general's affair with paula broadwell. we're back with phil and kim strassel and joining matt, what have we learned now? the election's over this week, about the benghazi attack. >> the drip, drip of information keeps coming out and coming out. and we've learned far more about the personal life than benghazi the last two months and the important thing this week, especially on friday was that general petraeus was reported to have told the senate intelligence committee in closed hearings that he thought it was terrorism within 24 hours. which questioned the narrative put out by the white house, subsequently and for the eight days afterwards, they said, no, no, al-qaeda had nothing to do with it. this was the fault of the, you know, anti-islam video on youtube. >> paul: video. >> yeah. >> paul: bill, does that mesh with
and recent cnn/rnc polling shows more than 2 in 3 support tax hikes for the wealthy. u.s. a reality that republicans will grapple with from now until new year's day. joining me, congressman tom cole from oklahoma. a republican. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> your proposal, republican lawmakers should agree with democrats, exstand the tax breaks for those making $250,000 or less, before the end fortunate year, deal with the tax rates for the wealthiest later. an idea that a lot of republicans are resisting. what kind of pushback are you getting? >> the reaction is mixed. some support it. some don't. some have more questions about it. but, look, the issue really is pretty simple. i don't believe in raising tax rates on anybody. i think it's bad for the economy. bad for job creations. ultimately by slowing down growth cuts revenue, and the president needs to come to the table with real spending restraint and real, frankly, entitlement reform. having said that, if we agree taxes shouldn't go up on 98% of the people, shouldn't we take that now and get that set aside, make sur

history of debt in the u.s.; and h.i.v. infections in young people. but first, the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: wall street lost ground today over renewed concerns that deficit talks in washington are not making progress. the dow jones industrial average was down 89 points to close at 12,878. the nasdaq fell nine points to close below 2968. earlier, there were more signs of a recovery home prices went up in most major u.s. cities by 3% in september compared to a year ago. america's ambassador to the u.n. failed to mollify senate critics today on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. susan rice met with republican senators who've criticized her for saying-- five days after the attack-- that anti-american protests were to blame. in fact, u.s. officials already knew it was a terrorist strike. today, rice blamed faulty intelligence. but senator lindsey graham said he was unimpressed. bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi libya by ambassador rice i thin
reagan was with the blowing up of the u.s. marine in beirut. >> shep: this just one of several hearings that were underway today. each focused on what went wrong in benghazi. katherine herrage live. it's my understanding that within the hour, we've learned some members of congress viewed a video of that attack happening in benghazi. >> the intelligence community put together a half hour video, composite from multiple video sources that shows the minutes before the attack, the militants overrunning the consulate, and the second wave of mortars that struck the c.i.a. annex. >> i mean, it's just so obvious to be so obvious to any inexperienced individual that this was purely a terrorist attack. >> fox news has told the c.i.a. is launching a preliminary investigation into the former director's conduct. the issue is whether any c.i.a. resources were used to facilitate the alleged affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. the f.b.i. is already concluded that the former director was not the source of the classified information found on her computer. however, if anything impr
, the u.s. ambassador, susan rice, meets with some of her toughest critics. and apparently they don't like what she has to say. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some we didn't get. more disturbed now than i was before. >> shepard: republican senators criticizing ambassador rice for her initial comments on the libya consulate attack. >> ambassador rice has no responsibility for collecting, analyzing and providing intelligence. >> shepard: tonight the ambassador responds. >>> plus, the people of egypt trying to avoid trading one dictator for another. fighting back against a president who gave himself new powers. tonight a potential crisis point as the leader tries to put himself above the law. and how will the u.s. handle this? >>> plus, the chances of winning are ridiculously low. but millions of us are still lining up for a shot at a record powerball jackpot. >> lucky, lucky, lotto win. >> shepard: tonight a look at the actual odds of winning it all. but first from fox this tuesday night, three republican senators now say they cannot support the u.n.

the terrorist attack in the u.s. consulate in bengahzi. you were westerning that al qaeda was gaining a foothold in libya. what do you think as to why those references were deleted. >> it's off times, wolf, these talking points went to multiple agcies, probably a dozen agencies, and dozens of people touched them. nobody ever took final responsibility for the clearing of them. it's sort of a typical bureaucratic fumble as far as i'm concerned. and the more frustrating thing to me, wolf, is the fact of what we're not talking about, while we continue to talk about the talking points, what is lost in this is as you say, prior to this event, al qaeda was gaining a foothold in libya, and why wasn't more security given to them at the u.s. consulate. the substance of this is lost in the debate about the talking points and that is the more important issue to me. guys, thank you very much for joining us. >> thanks. >> pleasure. >> rebel fighters in syria are claiming a major victory. they say they shot down three regime aircraft in the past 24 hours, including a mig fighter jet. if true, the regime may be
a great thanksgiving. jon: the u.s. condemns the bus bombing as a terror attack. secretary hillary clinton is working hard on brokering a cease-fire deal. she has met with israeli and palestinian leaders. chief white house correspondent ed henry has more. reporter: that's right, a double duty for the outgoing secretary of state. last night she was in a meeting with benjamin netanyahu. this morning, very early, meeting with the palestinian president and actually went back to israel to meet again with benjamin netanyahu. she also met with mohammed morsi. from a u.s. perspective, president obama is weeks away from being sworn in for his second term. they are hoping to bring peace of some kind and they hold that they have some kind of a short-term solution. they are looking for something and that is eluding them right now. jon: the hopes have been complicated by the relationship with egypt, which is not what you you you see. how does the u.s. have agreed that? >> you have president morsi secretary clinton is talking right now. there are questions about whether he can be trusted, what kind of a

militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message to the business community that he heard their complaints and is concerned, shares their concerns about issues like debt and the stopgap way that we're running the government these days. so there you'd look for somebody with a bernanke-style business credential, somebody who is, you know, they got geithner from the new
week before house lawmakers concerning the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. molly henneberg is live in washington with the very latest on this story. >> molly: now that he stepped down, general david petraeus will not testify this up coming week at house and senate intelligence xheet committee hearings investigating the benghazi. some on capitol hill they do want to hear from him in the future. >> i hope we don't have to subpoena a four-star general and former c.i.a. director. i hope he would come voluntarily. if he won't, he will be subpoenaed. >> molly: petraeus who had been in charge of the c.i.a. since september 2011 has said the attack was in response to a protest over an anti-islam video. one g.o.p. congressman is asking questions about the timing of his departure. >> it comes days before he is set to testify before the house intelligence committee. it really begs the question what did the f.b.i. know and whether did they know it? how long did they sit on the information? i recall that petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have t
the eyes of the american cameras. we, in the u.s., are creating the conditions of terrorism bring strategic benefits while the path of non-violence leads to a dead end. what a sorry legacy for everyone involved in helping this come to pass. i want to bring in congressman steve cohen, democrat from tennessee, hussein senior fellow of the american task force and heather, former special adviser for president clinton and the policy planning team, now executive director for the national security network. this is my take away from the incentives that have been created in the region. hussein, i'm curious. as someone who is a very outspoken advocate for a two-state solution, if this is how you see things as well? >> i think, to some extent. >> feel free to disagree. >> i tell you where i did disagree, i think overall, your analysis is correct. the structure that has been created does, certainly, encourage palestinians to think negotiations, diplomacy and cooperation are a dead end and all the p.a. has to show for efforts are not being able to pay salaries of public employees which they pay in west
this point of view, it's sound analysis. what message is the israeli government and u.s. government that supports it sending when it makes choices that result in hamas being able to point to their victories and leaves president mahmoud abbas totally impotent. here's the lesson, as far as i can tell, if you recognize israel if you're committed to nonviolence you'll get roled, marginalized, undercut and left looking like a loser. if you fire rockets into the heart of israel, kidnap their soldiers, they'll negotiate and adjust their policies. everyone i've talked to on the palestinian side sees this disparity. none other than hamas political leader explicitly cited abbas's sorry situation in an interview on wednesday. >> translator: mahmoud abbas gave this opportunity to israel and the international community. what did they do? they made him fail, they let him down. >> in allowing this to continue, in refusing to pressure the israeli government to take concrete steps towards peace in the west bank, they're turning a blind eye while unarmed protesters are imprisoned, tear gassed and sho

points for both sides in the fiscal cliff negotiations but especially the republicans, making sure the u.s. does not become the next greece. tonight, economically crippled country is getting another infusion of the bail-out money. senior foreign affairs correspondent amy kellogg has the story from london. >> they were peaceful but this was a protest. these greeks weary of seeing tensions shrink -- pensions shrink and jobs grow were not happy about the decision to grant them more in bail-out money. they know the feet will be held ever closer to the austerity fire. >> the long installment is not for the workers or the people. but the banks. for those drinking our blood. nothing can change. >> greece's new prime minister welcomed the deal to keep greece afloat, the feisty opposition leader decried it as hollow fix. >> it does not include greece or a plan for greece. >> in a marathon session in brussels, they nibbled around the essentials of the massive debt problem. making adjustments sort of forgiving greece's debt. that might have been political poison for the european officials planning to
for themselves. but isn't there a danger in having a political appointee like a u.s. ambassador, in a sense, freelancing, when critical material is concerned. >> i don't think so, i think ambassador rice could have easily said we may have had an organized terrorist group that may have had affiliated with al-qaeda behind the attack in benghazi. i don't think it would have been compromising any sensitive information. i think the administration has used that as an excuse, and it really -- you know, america has a lot of overclassifying, that is one reason there are adults that are supposed to be able to handle this. and i don't think it would have been that difficult for her to somewhat give a more nuance discussion of what really transpired in benghazi. >> fran, you dealt with classified and unclassified talking points when you served at the white house, do you agree with rueul? >> well, those that drafted these talking points, perhaps the intelligence community will prepare the individual going out on the sunday show, especially if they're doing multiple shows, to understand where the lines h

that brought down the head of the cia, general david petraeus. another u.s. general is caught in the same tangled web. john allen, top commander in afghanistan, is being investigated by the pentagon for allegedly sending inappropriate e-mails to a married woman, the same woman whose complaint of threatening e-mails from general petraeus' lover cracked the scandal wide open. barbara starr is trying to sort this out for us. it is rather complicated, what's the latest you're getting? >> it is still the same fundamental question for the last 24 hours, wolf. why is john allen being investigated and how on earth did he get caught up in this? marine corps general john allen denies an extramarital affair with jill kelly, the florida socialite whose concern over threatening e-mails led to an investigation that revealed an affair between cia director david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. a pentagon official told reporters allen who commands the war in afghanistan is adamant he did nothing wrong. a senior official close to allen tells cnn of kelly there is no affair, she's a bored soci
tells congress about the attack in benghazi, what he knew, when he knew it and why the u.s. first told the world what it did. >>> and 18 days since the devastation on the east coast. scenes of utter devastation we have not seen until now. >>> and it is the end of the line for a guilty pleasure in america. but how did it come to this? nightly news begins now. >>> good evening, it worries them enough that israel's tanks appear ready to roll into gaza, and the skies have been raining rockets there for several days. perhaps the larger worry, both sides in this escalating fight have powerful friends that are getting involved and taking sides, like egypt, friend of hamas, and the united states, which tonight is sending naval vessels offshore in case americans need to get out of there. it has been another day of explosions and air raid sirens. it remains a situation on the edge. we have two reports tonight. our richard engel is in gaza, we want to begin, though, with martin fletcher in tel aviv. >> reporter: good evening, they met on the agenda escalating in gaza and a possible ground invasio
. and if the state department is saying they never believed that this attack on the 11th of september against the u.s. consulate was a film protest gone awry, think about it -- it's nearly impossible to believe that president obama didn't know. oh, and dimension the state department was watching this unfold in real time? when president obama in his absurd press conference then tried to portray himself as coming to the defense of a damsel in distress, susan rice, saying, quote, republicans should come after me. at that moment, he stumbled into a deeper and more damaging truth than he realized because republicans are rightly going after you, mr. president, because the evidence is mounting that you and your administration knowingly and willfully misled the american people on the benghazi massacre and lying to the american people, perhaps in order to get re-elected. that's a serious offense. joining me with reaction, texas congressman mike conoway, in the closed-door meeting with general petraeus and the author of a brand-new book, a host of war stories. oliver north is here. bring us inside the room. wh
. the ad says that the u.s. bailed outcries her and that chrysler is going to build jeeps in china democrats call this a flat out lie, and we did a little fact checking on both. jim angle live in washington with the facts. hey, jim. >> reporter: hello, megyn. jeep production in ohio has turned into one of the nastyist and perhaps misinformed debates of the season. back in late october bloomberg ran a store row saying that fiat the owner of chrysler plans to return jeep output to china and may eventually make all of its mod tphels that country according to the head of both automakers operations in the region. now governor romney mentioned that story in a speech later in ohio, but later learned it was incorrect. democrats and bailed out automakers rushed to say that jeep was not going to take jobs from ohio, but rather just open up a production line in china, which a later romney ad accurately repeated. listen. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> reporter:
than cementing it back to the status quo ante, but in terms of hamas which has the u.s. and israel have tried to isolate it for all these years over the last week or so we've seen arab foreign ministers and leaders literally beating a path into gaza to go and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with hamas. this at the same time that egypt took that lead role and guaranteed and secured this cease-fire. so it's a very important significant moment. first time the new islamist government of egypt has been tested. hamas is now a force to be at least negotiated with rather than isolated. and we'll see whether this actually leads to something more than just a lull. >> what israeli officials say is that hamas made a commitment to the government in egypt, the president mohamed morsi, that they would stop firing into israel. if that were to be revoked, that would be a violation. they would be breaking their word to the egyptians and that would cause some serious repercussions i assume, christiane, between the egypt government, muslim brotherhood-led government, and hamas. >> reporter: well, i was obviousl
: in part with a hashtag. my 2k. the white house is saying if the u.s. goes off the fiscal cliff it will cost the average middle class family $2,200 a year and they want middle class social media users, twitter users who don't want that to happen to get online right now. >> today i'm asking congress to listen to the people who sent us here to serve. i'm asking americans all across the country to make your voice heard. tell members of congress what a $2,000 tax hike would mean to you. call your members of congress. right them an email. post it on their nice book walls. you can tweet it using the hashtag, my 2k. >> reporter: as you heard at the top of the show treasury secretary timothy geithner is going to be on the hill today. one of his meetings will be with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell who just said, we are eager to hear the administration's specific plans for protecting jobs and growth by reducing the national debt, reducing washington spending and preventing a tax hike on every american taxpayer. so, bill, the two sides are talking to each other but it does sound li
, senator lieberman has pointed to the iranians as retaliating against the u.s. banks for the stuxnet attack that i will talk about momentarily. and our power grid. what is the risk? well, one is that terrorists want to break into our power grid. those of you that have lived a few days without power, as mark and i did in d.c. when a few trees knocked down our power lines, well, there are already, according to a number of the experts, foreign nation states that are in our networks, in the power system. the operation aurora, a few years ago, proved that a cyber attack can bring down the power grid with a cyber attack on one of the systems causing it to literally shake itself to death. and if you've noticed, you can't go to wal-mart and pull these power systems off the shelves. it takes a few months to get them back. a few months without the systems could be a $700 billion impact. the intelligence community in the u.s., they are afraid, too. they warned that already they should -- nation states are in our power grid. as you've already heard from john harrington, for the first time that i recall
